Suna East MP Junet Mohamed has said that the Kenya Kwanza Alliance is about power-sharing and not the common mwanainchi.

Addressing the media on Thursday, the Suna East MP said the power structure by the Willaim Ruto- led coalition is a clear picture of the coalition's interests in government positions.

"From this lineup, two things came out clearly, one is that Kenya Kwanza under the patronage of Ruto is about positions not the common people, mama mboga or bodaboda."

The lineup unveiled on Wednesday shows that the United Democratic Alliance (UDA) party will produce the president and the deputy president.

Amani National Congress (ANC) leader Musalia Mudavadi will be the Prime Cabinet Secretary if the Alliance wins the August 9 General Election.

The spot for the National Assembly Speaker is reserved for the Ford Kenya leader Moses Wetang'ula.

Kilifi Governor Amason Kingi of Pamoja African Alliance (PAA) will be given the position of Senate Speaker in the event that Kenya Kwanza forms the government.

Further, according to the structure, Mudavadi and Wetang'ula will be allocated 30 per cent of the appointive government positions, if Ruto is elected president.

Junet added that Ruto was turning against his word that his government will be about the common person and not sharing of power among the principals.

"The very thing that Ruto has condemned for more than four years. He has been telling Kenyans that his coalition is not about sharing power, it's about helping the common people."

"We have come to discover today that the mama mboga Ruto has been talking about are Mudavadi, Wetang'ula, Kingi and Governor Alfred Mutua,' he added.
